    From the linked article: “To avoid this, the researchers are proposing that conservationists consider intensive breeding programs to keep these unique and fascinating birds away from a disappointing end.”

    Question:

    Could some kind of genetic engineering be used to introduce enough diversity into the kiwi genome to give them a chance against that risk (also from the article) that one novel disease could wipe them out?
